Hey guys.
I noticed some odd tire wear after my trackday. I've seen it before and heard someone say it was a damping issue but i cant remember if it was too much/little or even comp/reb. if it matters at all, im 200lbs without gear.

anyhow, this is the right side of the tire as seen from the back. the bottom leg of that groove has the top edge curled up a bit.

any help or recommendations are appreciated, also while looking at the shock im not entirely sure which adjusters are for what.

The tire looks great so far :thumbsup:

The comp = top adjuster while rebound is @ the bottom.

Tyre looks fine to me to. They will get ripped up around the tread grooves. In my limited experience bad suspension settings usually result in tyres worn unevenly or scalloped. Common to get differential tyre wear between left and right sides, depending on rider and track

Shock is an Ohlins 3-way adjustable, not sure on actual model # and the tire is a Diablo Supercorsa.

looks good if the rest of the tire looks like that, looks to have
a very consistent wear across the tire.

The tire wear indicates slightly too much rebound damping (the bottom black ribbed adjuster under the spring)

Send me the model number off the shock,it is found on the top of the shock near the top mount and is in the format KAXXXX (just have to fill in the X's) and I will send you the owners manual in electronic format. Wouldn't mind seeing the rest of the tire.
